ROCORI Spotlight


 A rigorous program is the standard for our middle school curriculum. The four core classes in math, English, social studies, and science are taken every day all year for all students in grades six through eight. In addition, we offer many elective options for students to take and explore, which include choir, band, art, theater, technology and robotics, family and consumer science (FACS), physical education, health, and Spanish.  We encourage students to take a variety of courses in a variety of areas to discover areas of interests and talents.


The faculty, staff, and administration at ROCORI Middle School are dedicated to creating an environment that enables students to experience a structured, caring, and positive learning atmosphere.  It is our belief that such an environment promotes self-respect and an equal respect for others.  Since our fundamental purpose is to provide for the education and development of all our students, it is our commitment to develop skills in our students that will enable them to reach their highest levels of achievement.


A variety of programming options are offered in athletics, activities, fine arts, academic competitions and clubs at ROCORI Middle School.  These provide students an opportunity to further explore and develop the gifts and talents they have been given.  All extra-curricular programs are designed to balance each Middle School student’s overall educational experience and provide a way for them to have greater involvement and connection with the school and community

Building Tallest Tower in 60 seconds

The seventh annual ROCORI Coaches Carnival will occur on Friday, March 22nd from 3-5:30PM in the ROCORI High School and Middle School Gyms and Commons. 

Students in grades 3-8 will be invited and informed about the event during school and a permission sheet will be sent home. Please encourage students to bring their permission slips and $6 to their teachers prior to the event this week as this will help check them in faster at the door. (Sheets will be available through the schools if needed). 

All students in grades 3-8 are invited to attend the event without a parent.  Students who are younger can come but will need to come with a parent or guardian and sign up at the door.  Eligible students who decide to come at the last minute can also check in at the door (#11).  All parents of students are welcome to attend with their children. 

The carnival will include many prizes and fun activities including many sports or activity booths and inflatable fun areas.  This event will also allow students to meet and have fun with current ROCORI High School athletes.  Music will be provided and there will be numerous awards and prizes to win at over 50 various activity booths as well as a drawing with special prizes at the end in the auditorium.  There will also be concessions available including cotton candy. 

Mission Possible Episode 5 brings us to Academy Day, a day in which teachers get to be students for the day and take advantage of personalized learning opportunities. Academy Day happens every January on Martin Luther King Jr. Day and now hosts four districts in addition to ROCORI staff!
